TUCSON, Ariz. — Power has been restored at the Tohono O’odham (toh-HO’-noh AH”-tuhm) Nation’s main reservation in southern Arizona west of Tucson.

The lights had gone back on Wednesday night after going out Monday due to severe weather.

Officials say the damage had been so severe that experts were brought in to restore the power.

Emergency generators provided power for essential services during the outage.

The nation resumed normal business hours Thursday.
